We love getting to know our new team members and finding out lots of random bits of information about them. We’ve had a chat with one of our most recent additions to the team, Chelsea, to find out how she’s getting on and what she enjoys doing outside of work.
What is your job role here at A&P?
Hi, my job role here at A&P is Trainee Marketing Account Executive.
What is your background?
I left University in 2014 where I studied Events Management at UCLAN. My degree consisted of planning and delivering events and event marketing as my key subjects.
After University, I then worked at Manchester Airport, screening hold baggage for 3 years working alongside border force and the police department.
Since 2014, I have enjoyed travelling to various places in the world such as Australia, Bali and Thailand, as I enjoy experiencing different cultures and exploring countries outside the UK.
Tell us 3 positives about your first week at A&P?
- On my first day everyone was so friendly. I found the induction meetings very helpful to meet everyone in each department and put faces to names.
- Everyone in the company has made me feel welcome, stopping to chat.
- My team are lovely and always happy to help.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Outside of work I enjoy travelling when I can, the Lake District is my favourite place in the UK and I also enjoy travelling long haul. I have a trip booked to Japan in November.
I have many animals: 2 rabbits, mice, a boxer dog and a horse – on my days off you will find me at the farm or walking the dog.
I also enjoy music and try to get to as many festivals and music gigs as I can throughout the year. My favourite type of music would be indie/alternative with the likes of Noel/Liam Gallagher and The Courteeners being my favourites.
What accomplishments are you most proud of?
My greatest accomplishments are graduating with my Events Management degree and travelling to Australia on my own for 4 weeks.
Would you rather never use social media sites/apps again or never watch another movie/tv show?
Never watch another movie or TV show.
Have you ever had/do you have a nickname?
I don’t have a nickname, but people often call me Chels for short.
What’s your go-to comfort food?
I love a good Chinese – sweet and sour chicken and egg fried rice please (don’t forget the spring rolls!).
What’s your favourite brand of all time?
You can’t beat Converse – so comfy and they go with pretty much anything.
What’s your favourite tv show/series?
I am really into Black Mirror on Netflix at the moment. Each episode is so diverse and has a different story line each time. In July, it will be Stranger Things season 3 and I can’t wait for that!
